With Black Friday officially underway, it’s undoubtedly the best time of year to pick up a new MacBook Air or MacBook Pro at a steep discount. So far, we’ve seen discounts by as much as $100 to $150 off the latest models through retailers like Best Buy and B&H Photo. 

It’s worth noting that Apple now only sells MacBook laptops with the company’s own M1 line of processors. The 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air run on the standard M1, while the newer 14-inch MacBook Pro runs on the M1 Pro, and the new 16-inch MacBook Pro runs on the M1 Max. 

There will surely be Intel-based MacBook deals out there, which have their place. However, Apple’s M1 processor is so far ahead in terms of performance and price than Intel-based MacBooks that we’re only recommending M1-based MacBooks.

Keep this article bookmarked throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as we’ll be updating it regularly with the latest MacBook deals all weekend long.

MacBook Air M1 (2020)

The MacBook Air is the least expensive laptop you can buy from Apple and yet it runs on the same M1 processor as the 13-inch MacBook Pro M1. That means it’s equal in power to the 13-inch MacBook Pro for $200 less.

The main difference is that the 13-inch MacBook Pro comes with a built-in fan that’s designed to better cool the M1 processor for intense workloads, especially for video or photo editing. The MacBook Pro also has a slightly better battery life. Otherwise, it’s the Mac laptop that most people should opt for.
